Dickinson Fine Arts Academy offers students experiences in the Fine Arts and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) curriculum. 6th through 8th-grade students are able to attend classes in either gender-based or co-ed classrooms. STEAM topics are integrated with all subject areas through project-based learning. Expanded instruction in the arts is offered during the school day as well as after school through the After-School Arts Adventure program. 

Dickinson has a rigorous curriculum in all subjects, utilizing strategies for Indiana Academic State Standards along with Gender-Based Instruction, STEAM, and Arts Integration focused on 21st Century Skills. 

At Dickinson, we strive for 100% family and parent involvement. We make tremendous efforts to communicate with families and have initiated a parent community center. Parents are included on advisory committees and parent volunteers are a valued part of our school culture. 

Transportation is provided to all students who live outside the walk area for Dickinson.
